MGM Looks at Holiday Release for Rwanda

Originally Published: November 9, 2004

MGM will release HOTEL RWANDA, starring DON CHEADLE, SOPHIE OKONEDO, NICK NOLTE and JOAQUIN PHOENIX on December 22, in limited engagements.

When the world closed its eyes, he opened his arms. DON CHEADLE stars in HOTEL RWANDA – winner of the AGF People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Ten years ago, as the country of Rwanda descended into madness, one man made a promise to protect the family he loved – and ended up finding the courage to save over 1,200 people. HOTEL RWANDA tells the inspiring story of real-life hero Paul Rusesabagina (DON CHEADLE), a hotel manager in Rwanda who used his courage and cunning to shelter over a thousand refugees from certain death.
